Emergency Response Plan

The WCL Emergency Response Plan is part of the overall American University and subordinate to the AU Plan in the event of a community wide emergency, disaster or general evacuation.Under such circumstances, the AU Emergency Management Procedures will take precedence and the WCL Response Team will follow the directives from the office of the AU President.

This Emergency Response Plan is predicated on a realistic approach to the problems likely to be encountered during a major emergency or disaster. Hence, the following assumptions are made and should be used as general guidelines in such an event.


Emergency Evacuation



Active Shooter
